Happy Birthday, Tom!



Congratulations to Tom for completing one more trip around the sun - he celebrates his 37th birthday today! Sending out the very best wishes to him for a perfectly wonderful day.

Watchmen: Official Comic-Con Trailer

After months of anticipation, HBO has dropped a meaty trailer for us to obsess over until the premiere in October. Still no specific day for the start of the series, but at least we're narrowing it down!



Not much about Tom's character can really be gleaned - he is rumored to be Mime/Marcos Maez but that hasn't yet been officially confirmed. At 2:32, it seems to be him with the...er...running pigs, but he is dressed more like a butler (another rumor about his role). He could also be the masked guy in the wig at 2:23. Is he a butler with a masked alter ego? Is that actually Mime? The mystery continues.

Watchmen: San Diego Comic Con 2019

Promotion for the series is starting to expand as San Diego Comic Con opens this week. There won't be any Watchmen panels or appearances inside the Con (at least none that has been announced), but expect to see lots of photos posted by fans from the 2 off-site locations for their immersive "in-world experience" nearby. Enamel pins will also be given away. Could this tweet be a preview of what to expect at those sites? We'll find out starting tomorrow.



Hotel key cards at official Con hotels, pictured below from @englishmansdcc, will also have the Watchmen branding - and embedded QR codes. Fans who read the QR code will be taken to a secret tweet telling them they will be among the first to see the new Watchmen trailer (hint: you can read the code from these photos).

Twitter dropped some Watchmen hashtags today.

Also, Warner TV has a series of official Comic Con bags, including the designs below for the show.

Does all this mean that they might screen the trailer at the Con and then release it this week? Who knows. It's still a mystery, but it feels like we'll finally be getting something more substantial sooner rather than later. Maybe we'll even get a premiere date. Dare to dream.


Four Weddings and a Funeral: Trailer Released

Hulu will be premiering Four Weddings and a Funeral, the new series from Mindy Kaling, on July 31st. Today we got our first trailer for the series, and a quick glimpse of Tom in his guest-starring role. According to TVLine, the plot goes something like this:

"Based on the 1994 Hugh Grant rom-com of the same name, Four Weddings and a Funeral follows a group of American friends who reunite for a wedding in London. But after a bombshell at the altar throws their lives into turmoil, they must weather a tumultuous year of romance and heartbreak. In that time, according to the show’s official logline, “relationships are forged and broken, political scandals exposed, London social life lampooned [and] love affairs ignited and doused."

A new episode will be available each week for the 10 episode season.
